The top two lacrosse teams in the country, Syracuse and Virginia, will battle for national supremacy Friday night in the Carrier Dome.

When asked about the much anticipated matchup with the No. 1 ranked Virginia Cavaliers Friday, SU senior goalie John Galloway pointed out one aspect that has made this game so exciting. Scoring and lots of it.

“We pride ourselves on not getting scored on double digits,” Galloway said. “That’s going to be our goal. We’re not looking to get scored on more than 10 times by any means.”

Five different Syracuse players scored two goals and the Orange were never really threatened as they defeated Denver in their season opener, 13-7.

Following two lackluster scrimmages, the No. 1 ranked Syracuse lacrosse team finally got to take the field for a game that mattered. The Orange wasted little time showing why they’ve received such preseason hype, as they blew by Denver, 13-7.

All eyes will be on the No. 1 ranked SU men's lacrosse team as the Orange aim for a third national championship in four years.

February cannot come fast enough for the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team. That’s when the Orange kick off the 2011 season, and can officially put last year’s abrupt and unexpected finish behind them.

Coming off of back-to-back national titles in 2008 and 2009, the highly ranked Orange were primed to make it three in row. However, the Black Knights of Army had other plans, stunning Syracuse in double-overtime of the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Whether it's the traditional wooden stick or the latest model, SU's lacrosse team members and nearly every player has a preference.

Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation. One of the most important components in the game is the stick itself. Like the game, the stick has evolved over time. Until the late 1980s traditional wooden sticks were commonplace. Today, companies like STX, Brine and Warrior issue new models on an annual basis.

A crowd of 2,000 came out in full force despite the conditions, peppering SU players with unmentionable chants about their mothers and sisters and even a reappearance of the dead fish toss onto the turf.

Syracuse won 15-9 against the University of Denver and legendary coach Bill Tierney, who debuted with the team after 22 seasons and six national championships at Princeton.

The action began right after the opening whistle in Syracuse's first game of the season, as the Orange set the tone early.

Senior midfielder and faceoff specialist Gavin Jenkinson won the game’s opening draw back to junior midfielder Jovan Miller, who burned into the Denver zone and blew a shot past goalie Peter Lowell. After another clean faceoff win by Jenkinson, sophomore midfielder Kevin Drew went solo down the right side of the field and beat Lowell with a hard shot to the left side for a quick 2-0 Syracuse lead.
